This wine is the valued result of a careful and exclusive selection of Muller Thurgau grapes which come from vineyards half way up the hillsides of Termeno and Cortaccia. The grapes are lightly crushed, and the must, freed of its sediments by natural precipitation, is allowed to ferment at a controlled temperature of 20 degrees centigrade. The wine is matured for five months in rustproof steel barrels under a controlled temperature in the cellars of 15 degrees centigrade. This Muller Thurgau is distinct of its kind in that it has a very evident aromatic component and a well-judged fragrance. It has a good, strong straw-yellow colour and a warm, mature aroma, with a fragrant note that is reasonably thick and long-lasting. To taste it has a certain lift and a note of nutmeg and a well-balanced level of acidity.

The producer

For a century, the name Hofstatter has been associated by connoisseurs with a producer of excellent wines in Alto Adige. It was Josef Hofstatter who laid the foundations on which the company has been built. He was actually a blacksmith, but he also produced home-made wine for his wife, Maria. Producing home-made wine was, in fact, quite common at the time. His love of wine came from these origins. It was not long before he abandoned his profession to dedicate himself with passion, talent and common sense to wine-making. And so, before long Josef Hofstatter wines became famous in Italy and abroad with a client base that gets larger year by year. After the death of Josef in 1942, the company passed on to his descendant Konrad Oberhofer and his wife, Luise. Konrad Oberhofer was perfectly aware of the potential of the family's vines. He was one of the first in Alto Adige to begin harvesting and making-wine separately, vine by vine, and to put these wines on the market, not as an anonymous product, but as wine with different denominations (the "Crus"). In 1959 Konrad's daughter, Sieglinde, married the wine-maker Paolo Foradori, whose family had been successfully dedicated to wine-making at Mazon near Egna for decades. With this marriage the best vineyards in Bassa Atesina were united. Termeno and Mazon therefore became the foundations on which, today more than ever, the company and the family stand. Management of the vineyards and the cellars has now been passed on to the fourth generation, Martin Foradori, whose young man's impulses and desire for innovation draw on nearly a century of experience.

Best with

As well as being highly suitable as an aperitif or to drink with antipasta, this wine is excellent with fresh water fish or with fresh, grilled, seasonal vegetables.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 12 - 13 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This is not a wine to age for a very long time and should therefore be drunk within a maximum of three or four years of purchase. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
